Rivo Holdings Offices – San Diego

The fresh redesign of Rivo Holdings' San Diego workplace balances the privacy needs of the financial technology company with wellness for each individual employee.

  • Client Rivo Holdings,
  • size 15,100 sqft
  • Year 2016
  • Location San Diego, California, United States,
  • Industry Financial / Investments,
  • BNIM was tasked to design the much needed update for the Rivo Holdings offices, a financial services provider located in San Diego, California.

    With more than 80% of their employees being millennials, Rivo Holdings was ready for a fresh approach for their workplace. The Union Bank building has 360-degree views of San Diego, including downtown, the Pacific Ocean, Balboa Park, the San Diego Bay, and the mountains to the east. These views and the abundance of natural daylight provided an ideal opportunity for BNIM to design a workplace with strong connections to nature.

    At individual workstations, wellness was a key design element. A great amount of attention was paid to the integration of sit-to-stand desks and ergonomic monitor arms to provide the most flexibility for employees. Biophilia was also an important component of the space, with custom design planters were placed at the end of each row of workstations, replacing the traditional systems furniture end-panel. Finishes throughout the space is minimized to a minimal yet sophisticated palette. BNIM also partnered with multiple local artists to select and commission the artwork in the new space.
